Forum: GratefulDead Subject: in no time you will start hearing yourself

jerry garcia opened A LOT of doors.

he didn't just invent a style -- he cued
an entire world into recognizing a new perspective.

the key is to just keep going. if you keep going,
focused on your own mind and perspective and
not get hung up on whether you are deriving from
the same perspective as jerry garcia, then......

in no time you will start hearing yourself louder than jerry.



Mr Garcia brought it ALL together kid -- he clued us in. of course you sound like him......

Yes sir, you got that right. I used to tell folks that Jerry Garcia was the single most important influence in my life. In my new life now I don’t know many who give a hoot.
Thanks for your response – on reflection I don’t really know why I posted this – just looking for something to say perhaps. After finally breaking the ice and joining in with you guys, I catch myself thinking more about the forum during the day. Like I’ve been pondering my political views and trying to put them into words, but I think I’m out of my league. Well, now back to 9/3/72 !!!

"...I catch myself thinking more about the forum during the day. "

RUN FOR THE HILLS!!! If you dont watch out, you will end up like W Tell - and, let me tell you, that is nothing I would wish upon my greatest enemy.

seriously though, glad you have joined in more.

and yeah, i generally fiddle with the GD when playing my acoustic (and like you apparently, i generally have always fingerpicked as opposed to using a pick). Also play alot of Neil and the beatles. Although, you have been playin alot longer than me.

Lots of fun though huh?? :)

Yes, it would be truly tragic...imagine, two of me around here...hmmm, now that I think of it though, the whole "we are Gandhi" thing with BD's poll suggest YOU are already surrounded Dire!

So, watch it.

Gandhi - the lasting peace he left in his wake?

I guess drinking urine is something....

Hey, even Gandhi would respect a little progress...we are the New Age Gandhis if you please. Besides, after we unionized in 71, a number of restrictions were put in place...no hunger strikes after > 10% body mass reduction, bodily fluids off limits, etc., etc., etc.

At least it's a living, eh?

just poking - at least I didn't jump in the other thread with comments about how Hey Jude is possibly one of the worst songs ever recorded.
